Energy applications of electrochemical technology

High performance organic cathode materials for lithium-ion rechargeable batteries have received significant research interest because sustainability, flexibility and versatile molecular design. Many organic cathode materials such as active quinone-polymers have demonstrated optimal reversible lithium insertion corresponding to partial reduction of quinone groups and a capacity of up to 150mAhg-1. Based in our background of organic electrochemistry and particularly in quinone redox systems, is now our aim to explore the properties and potential applicability of electrochemically obtained quinoid polymers as new cathode material in rechargeable Li-ion batteries.
